** 1.- What is a meteor shower? **

As a comet travels close to the Sun, it warms up and part of the comet evaporates. After a comet has rotated around the Sun many times, a lot of small pieces are left along the way of the comet, that's what we call meteor showers.

A meteor shower happens when the Earth passes through the path of a comet. When this happens the small pieces of the comet, most no larger than a grain of sand, create light signals in the night sky.
